Janssen has recently returned to fitness following ankle surgery in the summer and has been featuring for Tottenham’s Under-23 side.

According to the report, Spurs value Janssen at around £12million and has also been attracting interest from Real Betis.

The 24-year-old has 18 months to run on his current deal at the club and is likely to leave before the transfer window closes at 11pm tomorrow night.
